SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: C

At 19-30 the Tigers are behind their money line projected win total of 20.6 wins. They have 16 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 14 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game, or a 5+ final margin). They have come up especially short at home. Their 9-18- home record is -13% lower than their expected win percentage. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 6-15, 29%. In simulations where the Tigers played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 30.4% of the time (#30 in the league). Their peak rank was #27 in the league back on 4/24.

Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average run differential is -1.98 which ranks #14 in the AL, but their rank based on win percentage is #13. They are the #14 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats). This is the same ranking they have among home teams. Their average run differential in their past 14 games is -3.5 which ranks them #15 over this stretch, slightly worse than overall.
